Projects

The Rome group presently counts some 112 members and the entire amount of their contributions, around US$92,000 a year, is allocated directly to projects, without overhead costs since the Fund is managed by members themselves, all volunteers.

Since 1983, nearly $1,200,000.00 were disbursed by the Rome group to fund some 230 projects! Some of these projects and their project description are available in this section - select the subcategories (regions) from the menu bar or from the options below.
